Worst Onscreen Chemistry Ever!! Love? Lust? Nope, these limp lovers could barely conjure up like for the cameras!

MADONNA & ANYONE:
With her fake English accent and wooden delivery, Madonna single-handedly douses any flames she might have with her leading men: Rupert Everett in The Next Best Thing, Adriano Giannini in Swept Away. (Though we admit Evita was a welcome exception.) THE PROOF:

JENNIFER LOPEZ & ANYONE
We loved her in Selena, but her pairings since have been paltry. Case in point: Jenny and Ben Affleck in Gigli (shudder) and the usually-on Ralph Fiennes in Maid in Manhattan (snore). THE PROOF:

NICOLE KIDMAN & TOM CRUISE
The former golden couple of Hollywood was slugging through marital problems while filming Eyes Wide Shut, and it shows. Tripped-out stuff: We wonder if art was imitating life? THE PROOF:

MARILYN MONROE & LAURENCE OLIVIER
Ah, what greater human passion is there than hate?! The Prince and the Showgirl suffered because of the off-screen tiff between its stars. Apparently, Olivier's mojo suffered when MaMo didn't swoon at his feet. THE PROOF:

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY & ORLANDO BLOOM
The high seas are full of everything but true romance. Swashbucklers Keira and Orlando can't seem to connect in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, despite the obligatory sweeping music and heavy pawing, as per the script. THE PROOF:

KATE BECKINSALE & BEN AFFLECK
We wish Ben had just walked away from this role in Pearl Harbor! There is nothing but dead air between Rafe and Evelyn in the (in)famous scene where Evelyn reveals she's preggers with Danny's kid. THE PROOF:

MIKE MYERS & JESSICA ALBA
Myers is still on his nauseating Austin Powers loop in the mega flop The Love Guru, while Jessica Alba is more small-town beauty pageant contestant than actress. THE PROOF:

NATALIE PORTMAN & HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN
Where should we start? The scene in Star Wars: Episode II, Attack of the Clones where Hayden awkwardly talks about hating sand to a non-plussed Natalie is about as far down as we're willing to go. The lesson here: like magnets, these actors just don't click. THE PROOF:

KATIE HOLMES & CHRISTIAN BALE
Holy chemistry malfunction, Batman! The cheesy, clichéd run-in between Bruce Wayne and his childhood friend Rachel Dawes in Batman Begins is a travesty for caped-crusader fans. What would Adam West think?! THE PROOF:

BRAD PITT & JULIA ROBERTS
The scenes shared between these blockbuster stars in The Mexican are few and far between -- and that's a good thing! Roberts and Pitt fail to turn up any real heat in this action flick. THE PROOF:
